Orange Pi Plus is useless, too.
Dont buy any OrangePi product before there is no mainline support.

About mainline, you may wait for a long time!
I bought a Cubox 3 years ago (Marvell Dove). Nothing was working. I wrote a DRM video driver, refused. I added sound through HDMI, refused.
The machine is now obsolete, replaced by the Cubox-i. Now, I think I am the only one to use such a machine, but it is fine enough for me as a development machine, and, for example, to compile a kernel for the OPI2!
The OrangePI Plus/2/.. software will advance only by the OPI owners. loboris already did a great job. I will have a look at the u-boot. If more people could work on the other pieces of software, we could have a nice product before the end of the year...

You are right. I have already 3 OPI Plus. They are absolutely useless without software support, with binary blobs inside uboot, kernel and SDK. And so on...

You're asking when it will be ready the new Orange PI PC, but the real question is: when it will be ready a useful linux distribution that support all the features available with the hardware (H3)?
What do you do with a piece of hardware without suitable software support?
I've an Orange Pi Plus, and I cannot use it because so far there is no useful linux distribution.

You are debugging that mali nearly half a year and not a single sucess we ever heard about it...only "debuging please wait". I bought this thing cause i don't have enough time to create my own working software(and btw it's not normal, that i have to do the software my own). I just want this piece of %!@&(bad words) make works, but none of the uploaded images are work(even the desktop is flickering)...I don't want new boards what i and the community want is a proper software(it not have to be perfect). So please stop saying you(Orange Pi developers) do something cause doing nothing is not enough...

Obviously, it is impossible to please everyone.
What I need is good working, low priced hardware a ...

Yeah, and whats the price you pay for this cheap low priced hardware?
Still some old 3.4 kernel sources, if you want use some newer hardware with you board you need to backport the driver if you are capable.
rockchip, amlogic, actions semi and others have 3.10 or 3.14 kernel sources.
Still some old android 4.4 SDK come on this is a new chip. rockchip amlogic and others comes with full fledged android 5 or 5.1 SDK with your new chips.
This is a dev board, you can not attach a lcd screen. H3 is designed for OTT boxes.
Buy a cheap H3 OTT box for 30$ and you have a case, power supply and remote control or buy a raspberry pi 2 that has mainline kernel support does not overheat and "works better".

There are paperweights that cost less.

if you want a decent linux support I don't recommend buying.
Wait until support is present and all code are public.
only in this way you can change something.

I couldn't agree (with you) more.  It seems only one person works for Xunlong .

it would be better if there were more people who would work for Xunlong.

and eat a pizza in less so you can save some money and buy a better board.

H3 is without support and they are not updating the softwares. Whats the point of rolling out new hardwares. Not answering questions but keep posting new hardwares out soon.

I agree with you.
All hardware is useless without software support.
